Who Will Be Our Next Fighting Champions – Strength Magazine – June, 1925

For the first time in a mighty long while there is a good chance of the two most important titles fistiana has to offer being left to wander around loose without a real champion in sight to thrust his head into either crown. In the mind of the average fight fan there are just two championships that mean a great deal- and the average fan is the one who indicates his preferences at the gate. They ·are the heavyweight and the lightweight. It is a curious fact that the men who hold these laurels are always the dominating factors in the roped square.
